Auckland city center is urban area at Auckland. Based on dormant volcanic beads, this city makes a wonderful tourist destination in New Zealand throughout the year. You can enjoy nearby beaches adventure activities and some historical places in Auckland. The city center offers few free activities for locals, and tourists are also welcomed here. Few of them are mentioned here.
Whether you’re interested in learning more about New Zealand history — or simply want an indoor activity out of the rain — Auckland Museum has got you covered. Doubling as both a museum and war memorial, the museum especially focuses on New Zealand history, natural history, and military history. Entry prices vary depending on whether you’re an Auckland resident, New Zealand resident, or an international visitor, so have a look at the Museum’s admissions page for more information. Auckland Memorial Park & Cemetery is located on 17 hectares (35 acres) in Silverdale just 20mins north of the Harbour Bridge. Set in a natural amphitheater looking north-east towards the Hauraki Gulf, it occupies a spot of tranquillity and natural beauty. This natural beauty has been enhanced by a multi-million dollar program of landscaping. A series of terraces sweeps up the enclosing hillsides, ensuring that every burial plot enjoys a peaceful aspect of the surrounding countryside, or is situated close to the water gardens.
The Park’s lakes and gardens provide the perfect setting in which to stroll or simply sit and contemplate. The whole park is planted with trees and shrubs, not only for their beauty but to encourage birdlife. Anyone may visit to enjoy the special atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. Picnics, family outings – even musical events of an appropriate nature – conducted respectively, are encouraged because Auckland Memorial Park & Cemetery is a place to celebrate life as much as to mourn death
If you need a more sedate activity to balance out your trip, check out the masterpieces at Auckland Art Gallery. Located in the heart of Auckland at Albert Park, the gallery is free to enter and offers some awesome exhibitions from both New Zealand and international artists.
The Gallery’s doors opened for the first time on Friday 17 February 1888. Sir George Grey’s gift formed the core of the early collection, and we shared the building with Auckland’s Free Public Library. From these beginnings focusing on European and British art, we now have more than 17,000 words in the collection, and our redeveloped building provides purpose-built spaces for regularly changing exhibitions. The collection includes major holdings of New Zealand historic, modern and contemporary art. These artworks plot a visual history of New Zealand, beginning with the first contact between M?ori and European explorers in the 1600s.

Maungauika is a volcano forming a headland called North Head at the east end of the Waitemat? Harbour in Auckland, New Zealand, in the suburb of Devonport. Known for its sweeping views over the harbor and the Hauraki Gulf, since 1885 the head was mainly used by the military as a coastal defense installation, which left a network of accessible old bunkers and tunnels as its legacy, forming part of the attraction. The site was protected as part of Hauraki Gulf Maritime Park in 1972 and listed as a Category I historic place in 2001. As part of a 2014 Treaty of Waitangi claim settlement, the volcanic cone was officially named Maungauika and the reserve was renamed Maungauika / North Head Historic Reserve. Maungauika is the M?ori word for Mountain of Uika.
